UESF Membership Meeting
Thursday, August 14th
Washington HS – Main Auditorium
600 32nd Ave.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m.
Once again UESF members are called upon to take a stand for our students, our profession, and our schools. At the UESF General Membership meeting on August 14th we may consider the first of two strike votes. We need everyone to be there to send a collective message to the district that we stand together behind the UESF Bargaining Team.
In contract negotiations with the SFUSD we ask only for wages that enable us to live in the communities we serve, respect for paraprofessionals, and full support for our jobs so that we can continue to provide the children of San Francisco the quality education they deserve.
With substantial resources now flowing into the district, it is time to prioritize the work in the classroom and at the schools, and to invest in the people who do the work.
The UESF Bargaining Team will enter mediation with the SFUSD on July 23rd. Though we are committed to a settlement with the district, too many educators are getting forced from our communities, and we must hold firm on a contract that will enable us to do the most important job in the city.
You can do your part submitting your RSVP for the meeting, and then recruiting your colleagues to do the same.

Organizing Drive Launches Monday, July 21st
With generous support form the CTA, UESF has developed a robust organizing drive for a successful membership meeting on August 14th. Starting Monday, July 21st, and running through the membership meeting we will conduct member-to-member outreach at daily phonebanks at the UESF office from 2:00-5:00 p.m. (meals included)
The strength of UESF has always been the willingness of the teachers, paras, and other school workers to stand together in times of need.
Please volunteer for one or more of these phonebanks, and other volunteer opportunities, and ask your colleagues to do the same. Better yet, make a school-wide day.
